Jamie Murray and Martina Hingis win Wimbledon mixed doubles crown

Jamie Murray Martina Hingis win Wimbledon mixed-doubles title

"I have to thank Martina for asking me as I wasn't going to play mixed doubles", Murray said.

He only paired up with Hingis on the eve of the tournament after she sent him a text inviting him to play with her.

Just hours after her compatriot Roger Federer won a record eighth Wimbledon singles crown, Hingis made it a double celebration for Switzerland on the Centre Court.

Murray and Hingis beat defending champions Watson and Kontinen 6-4 6-4 as Murray sealed his second grand slam title in mixed, 10 years after winning his first here with Jelena Jankovic.

Andy Murray, notoriously nervous when watching his brother play, was lurking in the locker room during the match but was there to congratulate him soon after he came off court.

Murray responded: "I didn't get her message till I woke up in the morning".

"I'm really happy my ranking's started to go up again and after we play the final I'll get a bit of time off, because I've been playing every week". It's a great achievement.

"That was pretty nice to just relax and loosen up even if things, like I said earlier, aren't always going the way you want". "He said he came in the middle of the first set". I think this is a great project.

Murray, who won his first title at Wimbledon ten years ago, said: 'I forgot what it felt like the last time I won. He said he didn't watch it.

Another Murray intervention sealed a second break for 4-3 and this time they served out when the Scot hammered away a smash.

Hingis, 36, has now amassed six mixed doubles Grand Slam titles, 12 Grand Slam women's doubles crowns and also won five major singles titles, including Wimbledon in 1997. We'll have plenty of time to do that tonight for the next tournaments coming up'.

They had to work for the title - saving three break points as they looked to serve it out, before Murray finished it off on his serve. In the first set, as both men held easily, the key battles were fought on the Watson and Hingis serve. I knew I could do well with her. 'A odd feeling today, we haven't felt it yet together.

And while Hingis refused to confirm whether they would play together again, she admitted it had been an enjoyable partnership.
